Love Sundays, quiet, restful, & a good
This little quilt comes home tomorrow
can hardly wait to see it all quilted.
Patterns are done for it, all I need
is a good picture and its finished.
Been working on the snowpeople quilt a little
this week in between printing patterns
fixing my website a little...
I don't think I could ever have a
website that I couldn't change around.
Can hardly wait to update
with fall pictures!
This is one of the drawings,
I'm really liking the whole piece a lot,
can't wait to show it to you....
The drawings only took me around
an hour to do,
somedays its like that
and other days
can't seem to draw a straight line....
My little pup and I wish
you all a great week,
full of summer adventures!
(well I'm Elizabeth Ann
his name is Toby....)

Shelves are starting to fill up
Got to go up to the mountains today
new ideas for projects
danced in my little head all the
way home after seeing all
the beautiful wool there.
Collected some of my samples,
only one more store to
visit to bring home
what I need to finish.
I have packed around 300
patterns so far, so when we
get there every bit of space
will be filled up.
Its quite amazing to see all the patterns
Only 18 days until I get to go,
I'm trying to stay calm,
really I am,

Three weeks until the show!
I have about emptied shelves
cabinets in my house.
If you take 6 steps in one direction
10 steps in the other direction that is about
the size of my little showroom space.
All my first ideas were thrown out, one
cabinet would have taken the back wall and
half the booth!
My dear friend has all kinds of cute
furniture but we have no room....
We found these shelves and they are working
I have 52 designs that are going so I am
printing 10 - 20 patterns for each one. I am
about 1/3 of the way through.
I have about 30 more samples to place around
so it should look pretty good when its all completed.
Its hot now and the veggie garden is making
squash and tomatoes like crazy.
Its a good thing, I like tomato sandwiches
you don't even have to cook them,
like I would have time to cook them....
Have a great week, stay cool.....

Goodness when I see this quilt
in a picture I'm thrilled with it.
The wools are so beautiful!
I'm really enjoying making these scrappy quilts
and adding some wool embroidery to them,
I guess I will have to make just
a few more.........
I have to thank Lisa
at Huckleberry Patches for
sending me a bit of wool so I could
get this done for Laura to quilt..
and I need to thank Errin at
Quilting Acres for the
beautiful wool bundles that
she puts together for me.
Almost a month now & I will be heading to
Portland for my very first show!
I have one more little quilt to finish,
some very cute snowpeople,
you can only work on them early
in the morning or very late at night
because they have a thing about this heat.... :)
I hope you all have a wonderful
think BBQ chicken, corn on the cob
and mint chocolate chip ice cream.....

Did you all have a
great 4th of July??
It was one or so before
we went to sleep,
the little dog just sat
there and watched it all,
I was more afraid than he was,
you don't even have to drive
downtown to see them anymore.
They were very pretty
everywhere you turned
they were going off
so we got a very good show
just sitting on our front lawn!
Here is quilt number 3,
only one more to go before
the big show.
Helps to stay busy and keep
the stomach from churning over and over.
The quilt is done, now I am sewing the
pumpkins and flowers on.
I got the beautiful wool for the pumpkins,
need more for the flowers and
wouldn't you know I ran right out of thread again.....
Have a great weekend!

The little dog was of no
got a new bone this morning,
I think if that cute little white poodle
that lives around the corner
came calling, he wouldn't even notice...
So I got the husband
he was focused on the
baseball game on TV...
I think that would be Sunny!
send your address over & I will mail
the pattern of your choice out!
Excuse me husband can you
pick one more number?
Caught him during a commercial,
he had time to swirl,
no peeking there...
wow he did good this time,
still after that bone.
Tatyana if you send me your address
choice of pattern,
I will send it on a fast airplane!
I'm still working on getting the
perfect picture of the quilt,
This one really shows the quilting
but there is a block missing.
I hope you all have a wonderful 4th,
we will enjoy our little town's
fireworks, they were great
of course we will enjoy a BBQ!
